Gretchen Bleiler talks snowboarding, fashion and the future

Gretchen Bleiler, 2006 Turin silver medalist, has taken her signature move to the next level. That is, the Crippler 540 (an inverted aerial move with one and a half rotations and a backflip) is now the Crippler 720. The 28-year-old finished second last weekend at Copper Mountain in the U.S. Snowboarding Grand Prix, the first step toward qualifying for the Vancouver Olympics. Find out more about her new trick, her line of clothing and how she views the growth of snowboarding in this interview with Vanity Fair.
